If one wants to do philanthropy "properly," one has "to treat it like an investment requiring thorough due diligence and regular goals and metrics tracking and assessment," AIF Chair Lata Krishnan said in an event.
"It isn't about what we want to get done," said Ms Krishnan. "It is about those who are underprivileged and in need; (and finding out) what do they want, and how can we best deliver that. Ms Krishnan, who co-founded two enormously successful companies with her husband Mr Ajay Shah, stressed the need for bringing business-oriented values to philanthropy, which, she said, is one of the two core things AIF focuses on.
Ms Krishnan and Mr Shah along with a friend, bootstrapped SMART Modular Technologies "with only USD 110,000 in angel funding" in the early 1990s.
Currently, Ms Krishnan is the chief financial officer of Shah Capital Partners, which invests in technology companies.
